1964: The TributeCome see why “1964”…The Tribute is the definitive Beatle show!

Choosing songs from the pre-Sgt. Pepper era, “1964” astonishingly recreates an early 60’s live Beatles concert, with period instruments, clothing, hairstyles, and onstage banter.  Over 25 years of researching and performing have made “1964” masters of their craft and their shows have sold out at Carnegie Hall and Red Rocks many times.  Come see why “1964”…The Tribute is the definitive Beatle show!
